Summer Beach Hair

You know when you go to the beach and you spend the day under the sun and in the ocean and you hair ends up looking wavy, pretty and mermaid like? Yeah...sadly...living in the mid-west doesn't quite give me that opportunity :P
Having somewhat obnoxiously thick and long hair...about 2 feet and 2 inches to be exact...I love to do different things with my hair! I love curling it and braiding it and putting it in cool up-do's but it takes so much time especially since my hair's super long. So most of the time I do in fact leave it plain. My hair's not completely straight, it has some (but barely any) waves to it but I've been obsessing and wanting the summer beach hair style for a really long time!
My friend has a product (which I forget what it's called) that she uses that gives her the effect and it's so easy and quick and I love it! Problem is, since I'm a jobless teenager I don't really want to spend $10-20 on a 16oz spray. So, I've been looking on Pinterest and YouTube and Tumblr to try to find homemade sprays because I know there are some out there that work. I tried making one, this one, last night. It somewhat worked but didn't turn out so great in the end and I think it's because of how thick my hair is compared to theirs. I'm just trying to find something that works with my hair...my hair almost always obeys :P
So...here's my question for all of you! Do you guys know of any spray D.I.Y.'s for long thick hair that I can use to create the summer beach hair effect? If you do please please PLEASE tell me! I'm getting bored of my straight/barely wavy hair :P I would really LOOOOVE the helpl!!!
My first giveaway will be presented tomorrow!!! Woot Woot!!! haha :)
Hope everyone has a lovely Friday! This week went by super fast!

  1. Woah your hair's 2 feet 2 inches?! That would take me my whole life to grow! I've been trying something that works also, I'm just afraid of messing one up and ruining my hair :P

  8. I love beach hair! I haven't used it myself yet, but one of my friends (who has gorgeous hair) swears by Lee Stafford's Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray. Definitely one to try out!
